Secretary Gonzales testified at an oversight hearing of Justice Department operations in which he was repeatedly questioned about his role in the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys, his management of the process by which the decision was reached, and the potential political considerations involved in the firings. He apologized for mistakes and poor judgment in responding to criticism for the dismissals, but defended the decision and said that political concerns did not play a role. Several Republican senators, as well as Democratic senators, harshly criticized his judgment and leadership of the Justice Department, with Senator Coburn publicly calling for Mr. Gonzales' resignation. close
